This mod adds hundreds (thousands?) more possible drink recipe combinations to the game's "hot beverage maker".

Why did I make this mod? I thought it was odd that you couldn't make Hot Chocolate. Plus it turned out to be really easy to add more names to the random drink generator.

I know what you’re thinking — this mod is pretty much pointless — and I agree. It’s pretty much pointless. But who doesn't love a hot drink? Or seeing what stomach-turning mix of sugar, caffeine, dairy and water your Sim decides to choose as his or her 'favourite'? :D

  • Coffee types expanded from 4 to 11
  • Toppings expanded from 5 to 23
  • Flavours expanded from 7 to 35
  • Cream types expanded from 4 to 13
  • "Tuples" (X with Y, Hot X, etc.) expanded from 5 to 23

  • “Cappucino” typo fixed
  • Double-spacing error in beverage names fixed

Compatibility Notes
  • Developed with base game 1.8 patch, compatible with all patch versions to date
  • No EP(s) needed
  • English language only

Also conflicts with any hack that modifies the HotBeverageMachine XML, including Have Coffee With Me. You need to load this mod with a higher Priority, since the XML in this package contains more changes (it increases the end numbers of 'coffee ingredients' so that the game will recognise and display the additional strings).

Easy way to do this:

1. Download the version of resource.cfg from MTS's help page (direct link). If that's where you originally got it, skip to step 3.
2. Replace the version of Resource.cfg in *user*\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods with the downloaded version
3. Create a Mods\Test folder alongside your Mods\Packages folder
4. Move ani_HaveCoffeeWithMe.package into the Mods\Test folder and leave chann_hotCoffee.1.8.package in Mods\Packages (you can subfolder them as normal). This ensures that both are still loaded, with the changes in this mod prevailing

Install as per a standard XML mod, in the Mods folder, or using a third-party helper.

Latest changes
Version 3 - fixed the STBL override; changed kHotBeverageFoodUnits from 15 to 30 in line with ani's mod
